    Did you guys brought the the lens up from the pond or not? There might still be a chance to repair it.

    very tragic accident...
    but there is almost no chance of it working properly again if u retrieve it..
    all the gizmos in there, the chips and wiring wld all be damaged already, but no harm trying.. even just to keep its body..

    try to retrieve it, inform the park management before you do that and remember to get help if you do not have the competency to retrieve it from the pond, not worth risking your life. It is fresh water, as long as does not get exposed to air, there are chances that corrosion hasn't set in and you may be able to rescue it.

    say until liddat... like someone drowned... probably you can bring a watermelon and throw into the pond... but at your own risk if the caretaker goes after you.

    that would surely take a long time...
    unless they know the exact spot....
    though it's a small pond, but i covers quite a wide perimeter....

    btw, with or without lens hood?

    my guess is, only lens cap, lens rear cover, lens hood able to use only... the rest, i think can put in the fish tank if found, then let the fish nibble at it. by now, i guess the optics will also be a gone case for algae already.
